Wilson Hits Slam; Tigers Rip Sox, 13-1 Br BOB SAIXS SPORT a the bunt and tagged out Conigliaro himself as Joe Foy scampered across the plate. "That," Wilson suggested to Conigliaro, "was a horse-feathers play." Red Sox manager Billy Herman wasn't thrilled with it himself, considering the situation, and plans to chat with Conigliaro on Sunday. "I don't like to talk about plays right after a ball game," Herman said. "It could turn into an argument, or something. You can accomplish the same purpose the next day after everybody's cooled off." Wilson was the antithesis of cool all day on the field, but especially in the seventh inning when he capped a six-run rally with his bases-loaded home run over the screen afer the Sox walked catcher Orlando McFarlane purposely to get to him. Wilson circled the bases deadpan as the crowd gave him a stamlng ovation and cruised into the dugout without tipping his cap. "Did I do that?" he asked afterward. "Well, I didn't intend not to. Maybe I was in another world. The people in Boston have been great to me. I was never booed here." The homer, off Danny Osin-ski, boosted the Tigers' lead to 10-1. Since Wilson is a pitcher himself, someone wondered whether he felt just a little bit sorry for OsinskL "Don't put nothing about being sorry in the paper," Willson scolded. "You need all the runs you can get in this game." Wilson drove in another run in the ninth with a single after double by McFarlane. He was talking vociferously to someone in the Red Sox dugout as he led off first. "I'd rather not say," he responded when asked about the subject of the conversation. He'd also rather not say to whom he was talking. "Just friends," he explained. "I've got a lot of friends over there." "Hey Earl," a fan urged ai he led off base in the ninth, "steal second and really show 'em who's boss." Wilson didn't hear him. But the idea tickled him when it was broached after the game. "That really would have been aomething." he murmured. The Red Sox wasted hits by Rico Petrocelli, Tony Conigliaro (a pretty bunt single in the fourth) and George Smith before scoring in the sixth. Foy walked with one out and went to third on Carl Yastrzemski's single past second baseman Jerry Lump. Conigliaro swung and missed on the first pitch before laying down his rbi hunt. The Sox didn't get a hit through the final three innings. Norm Cash had two singles and a double as the Tigers collected 16 hits off five Red Sox pitchers. Al Kalin doubled twice before retiring in the seventh and hii replacement Mickey Stanley, chipped in with another double. Jim Northrup started their scoring with his 12th homer over the Tiger bullpen into the right field bleachen in the second. Anyone who would be interested in more explicit details of the Tiger scoring must be a sadist. They shall not be supplied here. Remember when Baseball Joe used to win pennanta singlehandedly for the New York Whales in the Kids' Fiction League by pitching four-hitters and hitting grand slam home runs? Earl Wilson had that kind of day in real life Saturday. Wilson spun a four-hitter (anything less than five hits is a spinner) and had three hits, including a grand-slammer, as the Tigers demolished the Red Sox 13-1, at Fenway Park. It was the 30-year-old righthander's second victory in eight days against hit former teammates. The only run he allowed scored on a squeeze bunt by Tony Conigliaro in the sixth with the Red Sox trailing by four rung.

But do not start comparing the Sox with the New York Mets, who are incomparable as gate attractions. The Mets this season will draw about 1 million more fans at home than th Red Sox.

"Insurance groups. Baseball builds health for the future. "Religious groups. The spiritual and moral values of baseball for boys. "Service clubs, like the Lions, Rotary, Kiwanis.

Over 300 of 500 players in the majors are former American Legion players. "Business groups. Baseball is an economic investment in our youth. Boys are acres of diamonds waiting to be harvested. "Oldtimers groups. Help the kids carry the torch you once held high. I recently got a standing ovation for this. "Medical groups.

He had a nerve taken out of his leg, 60-odd stitches put in his arm, spent 5V2 hours on the table and now, at 37, is a big winner for the Angels. He's the Comeback of the Year.

Listen, let's sit down some day and have a good talk Nets 19th Associated Press t'nite Preu Internatioaml In his first international trial Loyo-Mayo fought Graebner evenly into the fifth set until the sixth game. There the match was decided by the lob that flew involuntarily from Graebner5s racquet on game point for the service break. "It was a one-point match," said the dejected Loyo-Mayo. "It was a welcome sight, that shot," conceded Graebner. The malformed lob gave Graebner a 4-2 lead, and he held on the next two times he served to close down a match that was less-skilled than the Ralston-Osuna bout, but more suspenseful. Graebner began to pinch the Little Frog Loyo-Mayo with two fine forehands that made it 0 30 in the fateful game. Loyo-Mayo came back to 40 30, made two errors and it was Graebner's advantage. Loyo-Mayo, attacking, came to the net and was prepared for what Graebner had intended: a forehand down the left sideline. A misconceived shot that grew awkardly into a successful lob gave Graebner a lucky winner on the most critical point of his triumph over 20- LOS ANGELES Sandy Koufax pitched a five-hitter, struck out 11 and gained his 19th victory Saturday as the Dodgers broke a four-game losing streak with a 6 to 1 victory over Chicago.

The score was: 6 0, 4 6, 6 1, 36, 63 in an hour and 38 minutes. Ralston's serve came on with a roar in the third and fourth sets as he knocked off 27-year-old Osuna, 6 4, 26, 75, 61 in and hour and 43 minutes. Osuna, a quick loser to Ralston in last year's zone final (60, 62, 64), performed for three sets with the speed and flashing touch-strokes that characterized his dash to the U.S. Singles championship in 1963. In the fourth set, however, following the rest period, Rafe was flatter than stale beer and could not fend off Ralston's renewed thrusts. Working full-time now, Osuna no longer plays the circuit. The defeat was his 26th singles match during an illustrious seven-year Davis Cup career, and this is probably his last zone match. He had three break-points against Ralston in the fourth set, failed to sieze any of them, and was finally broken himself in the last game of the set. Rafe had made his bid, playing fantastically at times. But he wasn't good enough and he was through. Page 53 DAVIS CUP By BUD COLLINS Sports Columnist CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, O. Clark Graebner, playing his first singles match for the United States, and Denny Ralston, playing his 17th, hit the ball too hard and often to be coped with Saturday afternoon. Firepower overcame guile and the U.S. took a 2-0 lead in the American Zone Davis Cup final over Mexico as Graebner beat tiny Joaquin Loyo-Mayo in five sets and Ralston stopped Rafe Osuna in four. Linking their thunder, Graebner and Ralston will strike out for the decision this afternoon in the doubles. Their probable enemies are Osuna and Loyo-Mayo. A victory today for the U.S. will catapult Capt. George Mac Call's people into the quarterfinal round against Brazil in October. To the full-house gallery of 6100 in Clark Stadium, the opening match seemed a struggle between a waterbug and a whale. Even though the whale (6-2, 175 pound Graebner) was one of their own, the Clevelanders found themselves beguiled by the bug: 5-5, 150 pound Loyo-Mayo. They cheered his wondrous moves and strokes, the quickness of hand and foot with which he almost brought down the strong hitting 22-year-old Graebner on the fast, asphalt court. Martindale Shoots 66, Leads Thunderbird by 2 SEWICKLEY.Pa. Mrs. JoAnne Gunderson Carner of Seekonk, sank a two-foot putt on the 41st green Saturday to defeat Mrs. Mar-lene Stewart Streit, 1-up, for the U.S. Women's Amateur golf championship in the longest match in the history of the United States Golf Association. It was also the first time the Women's amateur went into sudden death. Mrs. Carner, avenging a defeat administered by Mrs. Streit in the finals of this tournament 10 years ago, had lady luck on her side, taking advantage of a break to tie on the 35th hole and remain deadlocked on the The two weary ladies then halved the next four holes before going to the par 4, 309-yard 41st. Mrs. Streit, who made clutch putts on the preceding sudden death holes, hit her tee shot into the left rough among the trees. Coming out she caught a tree and skidded into a trap.

Once his horse on the merry-go-round was a dashing thoroughbred. Now it is a swaybacked nag that doesn't seem to know the way, but Denny is still trying to ride it in the derby.

For the past several yean they have been the big namei in winning football, commanding as much, if not more attention than the quarterbacks and receivers.

The clinic, for coaches at all levels of the game, will emphasize the kicking game, continuing Mike Holovak's policy of concentrating on one phase of football. Holov launched this type program a year ago when he taught along with his assistants and members of the Patriot squad pass defense in what one high school coach claimed "was the finest clinic I ever attended, by far better than the college sessions that cost us good money." Mike selected the kicking game because, "it is the one There were two other people on the team who had their share in losing it. Nobody said that Spain had a good team and that the Spaniards might have beaten us even if I had beaten Gisbert. "I'm not complaining. That's all over the dam. I'm just doing the best I can. But it hurt. Why is it always on my shoulders?" Another thing that hurt Ralston was the constant cry that he can't win the big matches, a charge uttered last August in Spain by Davis Cup captain George MacCall. This public condemnation estranged Mac-Call and Ralston for a long time, and the wound may not be entirely healed. "Well, what people think and say doesn't bother me," Ralston said. "I don't think I have to prove anything. But unconsciously maybe I am trying to prove myself and maybe that's why I'm going on this Davis Cup tour again. "Maybe inside I'm trying to prove that I can do the things people say 1 can't do. But I'm not conscious of it. "I may not enjoy the tournament, week after week, but playing for my country in a Davis Cup match (this is his 14th) still means a lot, and winning the cup again would be a nice way to go out.

But, right now He was unpacking his tennis clothes prior to Saturday's match, and he began to talk about the Davis Cup thing that eats away at him although he insists that it doesn't. "To the public and the newspapers I'm always the guy who loses the Davis Cup" he shrugged. "They act as though I was the only person on the team. "In 1962 when we lost to Mexico, I played in only one match, the doubles with Chuck McKinley. Chuck and I lost and I got blamed for losing the whole match. Jon Douglas lost both his singles matches, and nobody even mentioned it. It was I who lost it, they said. "Two years ago it was all my fault when I lost to Fred Stolle (of Australia).
